Tedeschi (ShellVPower22) and Gravitt (sladeg84) each look to score their second win of the season in the league’s first road course race on Wednesday.

The Team Penske Esports and Wood Brothers Gaming drivers continue to run strong despite not winning since the season Xbox One and PlayStation4 season openers last month.

Both drivers performed well during practice late last week ahead of the 24-lap race scheduled for Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET , with the pre-race show starting at 7:30 p.m.

Tedeschi and teammate Corey Rothgeb (Pennzoil2) have both finished inside the top seven in all three races so far this season to give Team Penske Esports the early lead in the season team standings with a 13-point advantage over Roush Fenway Gaming (225-212).

From the editor, also read:

“The competition has been as tough as I expected it to be and getting a win is a big deal against all of these great drivers,” said Tedeschi. “Corey has been doing well and we keep working hard to bring more wins to Team Penske Esports.

“We’ve been working together to get more speed out of our cars and tires and saving fuel will be key to running well at Watkins Glen.”

Gravitt says making sure Wood Brothers Gaming makes the playoffs is first on his mind. 

“For me locking the Wood Brothers in is big and Watkins Glen International is the place I feel we can do it,” said Gravitt. “We’ve been leading a lot of laps in practice and have had (consistent) lap times.”
